About Us

We’re a community of passionate veterinary professionals committed to providing truly exceptional care. We’re set on building something extraordinary: creating the most forward-thinking and innovative place in the veterinary industry. We’re always looking for people who aspire to stand out in their field, and it’s this vision and enthusiasm that forms the foundation of how we work. Our mission to deliver progressive, around the clock care means our employees have the very best equipment and treatment options available, including in-house MRI machines and state-of-the-art operating theatres. We provide ongoing support to our teams, both in practice and through our dedicated training centre. This empowers you to get the very best from our advanced equipment while being on your journey to veterinary excellence.

The Role

We are looking for a strong and experienced Registered Veterinary Nurse to join the team as Head Veterinary Nurse at our fantastic practice based in Woolwich.

The role will involve all aspects of nursing, as well as the day-to-day running of the practice. This position provides you with the opportunity to develop nursing clinics and use your initiative to promote new ideas. Full support is provided by the nursing team.

As a Head Veterinary Nurse, you will be responsible for a variety of nursing duties as well as sharing best practice with your team and helping to support and develop the student nurses in your practice. While there are still admin duties involved in your role, support from the team and from Head Office will allow you to spend more time managing your team and doing what you love - nursing!

This is a full-time role, consisting of 40 hours per week. Previous experience working in a small animal practice is required. Ideally, you will have at least 2 years of UK veterinary nursing experience.

Medivet is growing rapidly and it is an exciting time to join us - we encourage growth and development within your role and are truly committed to help our Medivet family members achieve their goals.
